copperr is an R package that connects to the Copper™ CRM Platform APIs using tidy principles. The package implements most key actions from their REST API described on Copper’s developer portal here. The package includes what you’d expect to see in an API wrapper:
- Basic (Username/API-key) Authentication methods, and caching for API details
- CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete) methods for records
- Query a set of records
- Retrieve metadata Resources (Custom Fields, Sources, Pipeline Stages, etc.)
- Retrieve User profiles
- Helper functions to simplify some common record lookups and manipulations
You can download the package and read the “Getting Started” guide on Github here
I’ll probably provide some examples of the kind of sales data analysis and data cleansing I am using this package for in subsequent posts. Leave a comment if you’re interested in this?
I started out in my software engineering life writing software for embedded real-time systems and communication stacks, so I often think of myself as an async native. I’ve written a lot of code in various languages, mostly not using event-driven programming models and design patterns, but hardware interrupts, callback functions, event loops and finite state machines – I still see these as reassuringly familiar features of my original habitat. Call it the baby duck syndrome.
